25 July 2016. A Point to Ponder…

______________________________

The US military system is set up to produce “Managers”… the Russian military system is set up to produce “Leaders”. Perhaps, that’s why the Yanks couldn’t truly win in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Georgia, and the Ukraine… they gamed it out, but reality came and bit them hard, didn’t it? Nikolai Gerasimovich was right… he wasn’t a “perfumed prince” like the current crop of American generals…

10 September 2014. American Far Right Website Claims that Russian Sub Patrolled Undetected “For a Month” Near US Base

A Cabineteer said that this one is from 2012. No matter… it’s TRUE! In all particulars. It was an election year, and Cornyn hasn’t changed his spots, so, everything said is still legit. In fact, since Cornyn hasn’t changed his views in the face of reality, it means that it not only is still relevant, it gives all concerned a warning about Mr Cornyn… remember, he’s a Chicken Hawk and a gun nutter to boot… a coward who CHOSE not to serve. Great stuff, eh?

File this one under “Modern Fairy Tales”. Read this. It’s a howler! RT’s on the up and square… it shows that the Washington Free Beacon is a nasty-ass lying sack o’ shit. Note what’s claimed… a Russian nuclear sub was patrolling in the Gulf of Mexico undetected for more than a month. If no one detected it, well, how can we be sure that it was there for a month? It may have been there just for a day, or a week, or for six weeks… if no one detected it, how can we know how long that it was there? Besides, if the sub went undetected, how could we even know that this notional ship was even there? That’s Fallacy Number One.

Note what the clueless Texas Republican said:

It’s a confounding situation arising from a lack of leadership in our dealings with Moscow. While the president is touting our supposed “reset” in relations with Russia, Vladimir Putin is actively working against American interests, whether it’s in Syria or here in our own backyard.

No one has spoken of the reset for YEARS. I’ve not heard talk of it for at least two, if not three. In other words, Cornyn is appealing to clueless Yahoo Know Nothing baggers. It’s an election year, so, all sorts of rot gets spouted by all sorts of pols on both sides of the aisle. I’d observe that Mr Cornyn has no private means to find out how long the Russian sub was near the American coast. How does he know how long that it was there? Actually, I think that he got his intel from a Far Right navy officer who leaked classified dope… in other words, the sub wasn’t undetected, and the officer who spilt the beans is a criminal who belongs in the slam for leaking sensitive military intel to a loudmouthed pol. Cornyn belongs in the slam for publicising classified naval intel (for sub spottings are indeed such). SOP is NOT to admit that you’ve detected someone… that’s to not tip-off the other side that you know what they’re doing. So, this wasn’t only illegal, it was abysmally stupid… but then again, we’re talking of Tea Party Evangelical Republicans, aren’t we? That’s Fallacy Number Two.

To speak bluntly, American and Russian subs have operated near each other’s coasts for DECADES. Earth to baggers… this is nothing new. American subs operate near Polyarny… Russian subs operate near Kings Bay… both sides know it, both sides have patrols out in consequence, and both sides do their best to stay out of the other’s territorial waters. THIS IS SOP… THIS IS NAVAL DOCTRINE FOR BOTH SIDES… THIS IS AS OLD AS THE HILLS. Only a Far Right schmidiot publication like the Washington Free Beacon could fall for this one. That’s Fallacy Number Three!

The Ump cries, “Yer out!”… as the Mighty Cornyn heads for the showers, defeated yet again by stubborn facts. It certainly speaks to the veracity level of Matt Continetti (the editor of the Free Beacon), doesn’t it? He worked for Rich Lowry, which means that he has the same (non-existent) standards… do recall how Lowry claimed that the junta was winning the Ukrainian Civil War when Taruta was fleeing Mariupol in a helicopter and as the VSN was retaking much territory from the junta forces in the August Offensive. He’s also Bill Kristol’s son-in-law… we all know Kristol, don’t we? Shitbirds of a feather DO flock together. Continetti is another gutless yellow Chicken Hawk… that’s par for the course for the warmongering Far Right, isn’t it? He screams for war, yet he cowardly refused to serve, himself. Cornyn is another Gutless Coward in the mould of Richard Cheney… he refused to serve, too… but he screams for war and stumps for “gun rights” (he’s also corrupt in the usual Texas way, receiving 3 separate state and local government pensions in addition to his Senate salary). Great bunch, eh?

A note for Orthodox people… perspirin’ minds wanna know if Potapov, Paffso, and Webster (the Unholy Trinity of the District) have ties with this scabrous lot… I’d betcha that they are…

Northern Fleet Chases Out American Submarine Illegally Intruding in Russian Territorial Waters

00 northern Fleet. 10.08.14

______________________________

On Saturday, a high-ranking naval source told us that Northern Fleet anti-submarine forces detected and chased an intruding US submarine from Russian territorial waters, saying, “On 7 August 2014, patrol forces of the Northern Fleet detected a foreign submarine, presumably, a US Navy Virginia-class boat, in the Barents Sea. We sent anti-submarine ships, as well as an Il-38 ASW aircraft, to the area to search for it and track it down”. Russian forces chased the submarine out of Russian waters after a 27-minute contact. Our source said, “This is far from being an isolated incident, we’ve found foreign submarines in the Barents Sea lately. NATO submarines cause serious navigational incidents many times”. In 1992, the USS Baton Rouge collided with the Northern Fleet submarine K-276 Krab in Kolsky Bay. In 1986, the submarine HMS Splendid collided with a Northern Fleet PL Project 941 Akula SSBN.

Russia Plans to Erect Memorial to Cold War Soldiers in Moscow

00 Soviet soldier in Afganistan. 16.02.14

______________________________

On Tuesday, Frantz Klintsevich, deputy head of the RF Gosduma Defence Committee said that a memorial commemorating Soviet soldiers who died in conflicts around the world during the Cold War era will be built in Victory Park (Park Pobedy) in Moscow. The memorial will form an architectural ensemble around an existing monument honouring Soviet soldiers who died during the Soviet war in Afghanistan (1979-89). He said, “It’ll be a beautiful composition with sculptures and bas-reliefs depicting certain historical events”. Stone tablets with the names of about 10,000 Soviet soldiers who fell in hotspots all over the world will line the alley leading to the memorial. Klintsevich said that plans call for completing the monument by summer, noting, “We’ll start preliminary excavation in the near future, probably in March. We’ve already begun engraving the names on the memorial tablets”. According to official statistics, the USSR was in over 30 conflicts in some 29 countries; besides Afghanistan, Soviet troops fought in Angola (and here), Ethiopia, Yemen, and Nigeria. Some 15,000 Soviet troops died in Afghanistan alone, before the Soviet withdrawal in February 1989.

Editor’s Note:

America has no one to blame but themselves for the al-Qaeda militants. Because of the sick, all-absorbing, and twisted Russophobic hatred of Zbigniew Brzeziński, the USA aided the most feral Islamist elements in the Soviet-Afghan War. Zbig was the “godfather” of al-Qaeda… he thought that any anti-Russian group was good. Such evil elements helped to deform American élite opinion on the USSR (and, later, Russia). Should I also mention that Joe Biden‘s mentor was a pro-Ustaša Croat Catholic priest? You can see why the Orthosphere gets fucked by the American media, government, and One Percent. It’s our God-given duty to stand against this demonic shit. Thank God, I’m NOT alone…
